Wrong recipient when replying emails send to an alias


I have set up my main G Suite email a@main.com with an alias domain a@alias.com in MailSpring. Clicking the reply button for an email sent to a@alias.com opens a new composer. The recipient is a@alias.com instead of the original sender.

To Reproduce…

Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Add a@main.com
  2. Add a@alias.com as an alias in MailSpring
  3. User b@sender.com to send an email to a@alias.com
  4. Click the reply button

Expected Behavior

The recipient is b@sender.com

Actual Behavior

The recipient is a@alias.com



  • OS and Version: Windows 10
  • Mailspring Version: 1.7.8

Additional Context

The recipient in the original email is a@main.com which is wrong. After expanding the detail, it becomes a@alias.com. It should be #874.

The sender in the replying email is a@alias.com which is correct.
